RICHLAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Richland Police are investigating a shooting that took place Saturday night.

Rankin County Coroner David Ruth said he responded to a shooting on Linda Jo Drive.

Ruth said the shooting was a suicide, but one other person was injured. 

At this time, we do not know the identity of the fatal shooting victim or the man that was injured.

We are working to get an update on the man's condition.

The shooting occurred around 11 p.m. and when our crew arrived on the scene, one man was being transported by ambulance to UMC. 

Richland officers then closed off a home nearby with crime scene tape.

 Our crew said the man, loaded into the ambulance, was coherent and sobbing.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
